The NWA TNA 2003 Super X Cup Tournament was an X Division tournament that was contested in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.

History[edit]

The Super X Cup Tournament was an international tournament that featured X Division wrestlers from all over the world to compete in one-on-one matches, with the winner getting a shot at the TNA X Division Championship. The 2003 Super X Cup was the first X Cup Tournament of any kind for TNA Wrestling. Competitors from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, and Japan wrestled in the Super X-Cup Tournament. Many of these competitors were brought back to TNA for future X Cup Tournaments.

Super X Cup Events[edit]

Various wrestlers from around the Globe, including Chris Sabin, Juventud Guerrera, Nosawa, Teddy Hart, and Jonny Storm, among others, competed in the Super X Cup Tournament. Chris Sabin defeated Jerry Lynn, Frankie Kazarian, and finally Juventud Guerrera to capture the Super X Cup and challenge then-X Division Champion, Matt Bentley (known then as "Michael Shane"). Sabin lost his match against Shane, and the stipulations stated that it was to be Shane's X Division Championship against Sabin's Super X Cup. However, Sabin is still officially recognized as the overall official winner of the 2003 Super X Cup. The tournament brackets were:
